Description

A mixture of Medieval, Blues and Heavy Metal

Notes

The question you ask is... What is Gothic Blues?

Well, It's what you get when you take a whole lot of Delta and Electric Blues, throw in some Heavy Metal and give it all a Medieval / Gothic vibe, Stir all of this in a mind infected with a touch of Insanity and let it ferment in a soul that is Dark and Hungers for Knowledge-Forbidden.

Or ... you can look at our influences ... Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie / White Zombie, W.A.S.P., John Lennon, Richie Sambora and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Now that will give you an idea of what to expect ... but of course there is more to it than what you can see or hear.

The music of GOTHIC BLUES isn't for everyone it is dark and soothing and yet at times very powerful, but always very melodic. It is a finely tuned mixture of Blues and Heavy Metal with a Medieval feel. ... Those who enjoy only "formula rock" and "standard pop music" will become confused and feel hopelessly left out, so be it, if you are into, Loops, Samples, Covers of songs, If you are influenced by Mtv and treat it as your radio, If you just adore every boy/girl band or teenybopper singer you've ever heard, if you listen to Gospel or Big Band then this isn't the band for you ... and it would be wise if you get outta my face and look elsewhere.

I refuse to lower the bar so that they might be able to "get it", I would prefer that they leave and seek the protection of thier loving parents, or someone else who cares ... I am not worried about the sheep who live in societies bright light ... they can stay in that safety zone provided by local radio stations, continue to live thier lives as mindless pawns of the record companies and be led by thier friends who tell them what to watch, what to wear, who to associate with and what is cool.

GOTHIC BLUES is and will always be guitar driven music.Corporate produced cd's will traditionally have songs that will include all instruments. One can easily expect to hear 2 guitars, a bass, drums and vocals on each and every song ... but, Gothic Blues is not a traditional band, what each song needs determines what is used ... one song may be just 2 guitars, another may have 3 guitars, a bass, drums, vocals and keyboards. Not every song will have lyrics, over half are instrumentals and the songs that do have lyrics are not always sung. Not all songs have the "manditory" solo, some however have several solos

This music is not based on a formula, created by corporate executives and lawyers. No behind-the-scene figures poured over every word, note and idea with the goal of a top ten hit, or the of selling of millions of discs. This is music created in the purest sense... music a "dark" soul.

The sound of GOTHIC BLUES is...GOTHIC BLUES.

Gothic Blues started out as a band, but as members came and went... it came down to where I decided to make a point and do it all myself, and so I did. even without the help of another musician, the CD came together quickly. By recording what I heard in my heart (the music of the soul, can be heard throughout the universe)I proudly stand behind my solo effort and enjoyed making it.

I will not compromise my vision of the sound of this band, because...I dont have to.

Available now, here at CD Baby is the second CD... Gothic Blues : Requiem

Between the light from the failing sun and the setting of the moon, this is when you must expect the unexpected. A time when anything is possible...somethings are just more likely. This CD is the soundtrack to just such times.
This is the time of...Gothic Blues.
